Authorities say firearms were recovered in Birmingham, Alabama, during the arrest of a rapper whose concert in Little Rock became the site of a shooting that left 28 people injured.

The U.S. Marshals Service says Ricky Hampton of Memphis, Tennessee, also known as Finese2Tymes, was arrested early Sunday on charges unrelated to the nightclub shooting in Little Rock.

He was arrested at a club in Birmingham where he was performing.

Little Rock Police Lt. Steven McClanahan says several firearms were seized by federal authorities when Hampton was arrested on aggravated assault with a gun charges from Forrest City in eastern Arkansas.

McClanahan says the firearms will be sent to a crime lab in Arkansas to determine whether they were used in the shooting at the Power Ultra Lounge.
